    ROWA GROUP, Pinneberg

    ROWA GmbH was established in 1958 in Seevetal near Hamburg as a rubber- processing company. In 1969 the company started to produce high-quality lacquer systems, matting concentrates and additive systems for the coatings and plastics industry.

    Since 2010 ROWA Lack is a member of the ROWA GROUP. With its long- established experience, technical competence, modern product design and customer-oriented services, ROWA Lack has become one of the market lea- ders for the surface finishing of coated textiles.

    With its official subsidiary in China – the Ningbo ROWA Coatings headquar- tered in Ningbo – the company strengthens its long-standing market profile and boosts the service quality.

    Together with its customers, ROWA Lack develops tailor-made solutions – because customer satisfaction is our number one priority. Whether develo- ping new, innovative lacquer systems or optimizing lacquer processes, ROWA Lack offers flexibility and personal consultation. New products are always developed with respect to the use of environmentally friendly raw materials and state-of-the-art technology.

    For new and further developments special attention is paid to the solvents, in particular with regard to the SVHC candidate list (SVHC: substances of very high concern), Annex XIV (List of substances subject to authorization) and Annex XVII (List of restrictions) of the REACH Regulation. Therefore, owing to continuous optimization, research and development, ROWA Lack is able to offer SVHC-free alternatives for many established systems.

    PVC-COATED TARPAULINS Truck covers, awnings, materials for halls and tents – all these products are described as PVC-coated tarpaulins. In most cases, they all have the same base material: a PVC- coated polyester fabric. Moreover, PVC- and TPO-coated roof membranes and swimming pool lining can be included in this product family. Since these materials are prima- rily used outdoors, the applied lacquer systems have to be strongly resistant to weathering and UV radiation. The lacquer system should minimize the migration of plastici- zers, while also making the coated surface soil-resistant and easy to clean. In most cases, the lacquer systems for these applications have to be suitable for welding. Nor- mally, high-quality acrylic lacquers from the ROWAKRYL® series are used for these applications.

    PRINT MEDIA Print media are essentially PVC-coated fabrics such as backlit, frontlit and side-curtains. They have nearly the same requirements as PVC-coated tarpaulins. In addition, the various large format printing systems must be able to print on the lacquered surfaces. The lacquer system has to ensure that the print comes out splendidly and the ink adheres well. The features of the printed material should remain unchanged even after the lacquered goods have been stored for a long while. The lacquer coating should ensure that the print profiles are as similar as possible, regardless what base material is used. For this application lacquers from the ROWAKRYL® series specifically opti- mized for printability are recommended.

    TEXTILE CONSTRUCTIONS Here we speak about PVC-coated fabrics for the textile architecture segment. The required lacquer system must be extraordinarily resistant to weathering because it is used outdoors for long periods. Another important aspect of the PVC membrane is its long-term UV protection. The surfaces have to remain resistant to soiling and should be very easy to clean. In order to maintain the mechanical properties for a long period of time a very good plasticizer barrier is necessary. With the combination of ROWAFLON® UV protection primers and ROWAFLON® topcoats, ROWA Lack offers a tailor-made solution for this area of appli- cation.

    FURNITURE AND DECORATION FOILS The rigid or semi-rigid foils which are used in this field are made of PVC or TPO. Furniture foils can basically be divided into materials for 2D and 3D applications. Their basic requirements are comparable: They must be extre- mely resistant to chemicals as well as highly resistant to scratches and abrasion. The requested visual and tactile characteristics range from high-gloss to very dull finishes with hard, smooth and even soft-feeling surfaces. Coating systems for 3D applications must also be sufficiently ela- stic to withstand subsequent processing stages. For these applications ROWA Lack recommends the high-quality 2K systems of its ROWAK
